The role of Teacher of Languages currently encompasses the teaching of both French and German (French from Kindergarten through to Year 6, and German from Year 3 to Year 6). Planning for this teaching, assessing children’s learning and organising whole school events (e.g. ‘French Day’) are currently undertaken by our Language Teacher. There is also an annual trip to France. This role thus has wide-ranging responsibilities, which include being available to communicate fully with parents, and to participate in events outside normal school hours.

Other duties include:

  • attendance at staff meetings, parents’ meetings and other parental and school events;
  • preparation of end-of-term and individual reports;
  • reasonable additional assistance to individual children;
  • provision of one lunchtime and one after school club or activity;
  • close liaison and communication with parents;
  • a general commitment to school life as one of its key educational professionals.

An ability to converse in both French and German is essential, along with the skills and linguistic knowledge to engage children within a wide age range. The successful candidate will have a desire to develop the love of language in children, along with teaching about the culture of different countries. In parallel, he or she must have a clear commitment to excellence in education, with their own sense of vocation towards the promotion of each child’s learning, growth and development. Qualified Teacher Status is desirable, but suitable experience or alternative qualifications would be considered for the right candidate.

Information about the school

The School and Nursery

Bronte School is a co-educational independent preparatory school, age Kindergarten to Year 6. It is located close to the centre of Gravesend, with easy access to the station and the town’s facilities. Bronte Nursery, which provides care and education from age 3 months to pre-school, is located nearby, in a separate building.

The School has a family feel, with a single class entry, and an overall size which allows all teachers to know the children well. Academic focus is emphasised, with systems and a curriculum to challenge and stimulate, and to do so at each ability level. The curriculum has wide-ranging opportunities in each of the academic subjects and in sport, music, art and drama. On leaving the school, many children move to grammar schools (around 85%), others move to non-selective state schools and others to independent schools.

In addition to the Kindergarten, there are 7 classes, each of a maximum of 20 children, giving a capacity of 140.

The Nursery follows a similar ethos, looking to provide a safe, happy atmosphere, with a lively and full curriculum, where young children can grow and develop with confidence. Additional activities and lessons are provided in music, ballet, French and sport. The capacity is 70 children, and the Nursery operates from 7.30am to 6.30pm each weekday, for 51 weeks per year.

Our School and all its personnel are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of the children. This post is subject to an Enhanced Disclosure Application to the Disclosure and Barring Service.
